The HND Acting programme, in partnership with the world-famous Stephen Joseph Theatre in Scarborough, aims to produce proactive professional actors. The Stephen Joseph Theatre (SJT) is a professional producing theatre, was Britain’s first theatre in the round, and has premiered over 80 of the plays of acclaimed playwright Sir Alan Ayckbourn. In this unique partnership, CU Scarborough students will work with SJT professionals at points throughout the programme - including mentoring, observation of professional rehearsals, and participation onstage in a professionally-directed piece for theatre. Students completing the course will leave with a full suite of skills, experiences and contacts that will allow them to be fully industry-ready. Key course benefits Upon completion of this course, you will receive a qualification awarded by Coventry University, which is ranked 13th best university in the UK in the Guardian University Guide 2019.
